Israeli military policy not to investigate killings of Palestinians by soldiers

The report examines the policy in force from the outset of the second intifada: with rare exceptions, Israel's Military Advocate General Corps does not order Military Police investigations in cases of Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers. The video shows relatives of two Palestinians killed by soldiers under highly suspicious circumstances, describing their helplessness in the face of a system not interested in uncovering the truth.

The figures do not include fatalities in the Gaza Strip and Israel during Operation Protective Edge (8 July 2014 through 26 August 2014). These figures will be added once the relevant investigations are complete.
